We recognize that the lessons are very popular and it can be hard to get in to the one you want. Here are some tips to help:
• If you have questions about lessons the best person to ask is Katie Barnes, our Aquatics Supervisor. 
• You will need an account set up on activenet in order to register.
• Register in person at our guest services desk.
• If you have internet access, we recommend online registration. If you do not, the library has computers that anyone can use for free, and they are open until 8 pm on Wednesday.
Other important notes about lessons:
• Classes will not be rescheduled in the event of a pool closure.
• Lesson sessions will close for registration 1 week prior to start date. Levels that are less than half capacity will be cancelled and replaced with other levels that have waiting lists or private lessons times.
• All swimmers registered in levels must have passed the previous level. Swimmers that are registered in advanced lessons will be removed and a credit applied to the swimmers Active Net account. Electronic Funds Transfers because of these registrations will have a $10 administration fee.
